On Monday 6th June 2016 there were two illustrated presentations in the new Methodist Hall of the results of the questionnaire sent to all households in Bingham in September 2015.
The findings were first presented to the organisations and companies who would be responsible for actioning the results – the stakeholders. There were representatives present from Nottinghamshire County Council, Rushcliffe Borough Council and Bingham Town Council. Also present were representatives from local schools, Trent Barton Bus Company, Patient Participation Group from Bingham Health Centre, Linear Park Working Party, Rushcliffe Community and Voluntary Service, Police and Crime Commissioner, Neighbourhood Watch, The Friends of the Manor House and Bingham Leisure Centre. David Parker of the Newark Advertiser was also present.
The presentation was well received and there were many positive comments from the stakeholders regarding the information that had been provided by the people of Bingham. It has given them a clear indication of what the residents of Bingham want for the the future of their town and what the stakeholders need to action.
The evening presentation was an open meeting with the people of Bingham and was well attended, with over 140 people present. There was a lively discussion afterwards. The meeting was closed with a short address from Councillor John Stockwood, Bingham Town Mayor at which he announced that the town council was going to proceed in the development of a Neighbourhood Plan. However, many of those present stayed on to talk to members of the Steering Group.
